This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   This doesn't happen. Landon is a self proclaimed bad dancer, and asks his mother to teach him how to dance.
   These events do not occur. Landon buys/dedicates a star to Jamie, gives her a tattoo (a fake tattoo), builds a telescope for her among a few other very romantic things not mentioned in the book.
   The book ends with the 57 year old Landon still loving Jamie and wearing her ring. It doesn't clearly state that she died. It is clear she has died. It ends with Landon returning to see Jamie's father to give him back Jamie's mother's book. He tells him he has become a success because of Jamie.
   Takes place in the 1950s Takes place in the 1990s
   The play centers on Christmas, and Jamie plays an angel. The play includes Hegbert's struggle as a father. The play depicts the Prohibition Era, and Jamie plays a singer. Hegbert's struggle subplot is dropped.
